L.A. heavy metal firestorm VOID VATOR premiere brand new album ‘Great Fear Rising’ in full; out April 23rd on Ripple Music!
Los Angeles power-packed heavy metal trio VOID VATOR present their barnstorming sophomore album ‘Great Fear Rising’ today exclusively ahead of its official April 23rd release on Ripple Music. Don’t resist: get ready to circle pit.
About this sophomore album, VOID VATOR say: « We completed writing the album Great Fear Rising a few weeks before our Spring Breakneck tour of March 2020. Little did we know how relevant the album would become as the year progressed from ridiculous to absurd. We recorded this album during late spring to early summer of 2020 with Mike Spreitzer of Devildriver and mixed/mastered with Nick Bellmore of Toxic Holocaust. The album kicks fucking ass. »

Packed with fire, attitude and hooks, this new onslaught from the Los Angeles trio is their hungriest and most self-assured record to date, delivering nine ballsy and fist-pumping anthems that range from high-speed thrash to stadium-worthy heavy metal. ‘Great Fear Rising’ is a fun-laden and unwaveringly modern metal record that takes it cue from the likes of Power Trip, Megadeth, Metallica, as well as Thin Lizzy or Turbonegro. Don’t forget to watch VOID VATOR’s latest videos for I Can’t Take It and I Want More.
“Void Vator perfectly melds that balls-to-the-wall style of classic bands like Judas Priest and Accept with some thrashier bits accentuated by modern production and songcraft which yields a raging,
headbanging and flat-out fun result.” — Metal Injection
“This is optimistic rock‘n’roll with sunlight reflecting off its Ray Bans.” — Distorted Sound Magazine
“An absolute banger.” — The Razor’s Edge
VOID VATOR New album ‘Great Fear Rising’
Out April 23rd on Ripple Music – PREORDER
VOID VATOR have been striking since 2014 and quickly developed a reputation as a take-no-prisoners live act. Positioning themselves as worthy heirs of the New Wave of Traditional American Heavy Metal, they previously collaborated with Grammy-nominated producer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Deftones, Metalocalypse) on their debut EP ‘Dehumanized’ (2017, WURMgroup), then with world renowned producer Bill Metoyer (Slayer, DRI, Body Count) on their 6-track EP and Ripple Music debut ‘Stranded’ (2019). Shortly afterwards, their drummer Moura had to return to his homeland Germany due to visa issues. Fueled by anger and frustration, the band started work on the record immediately after their last tour was abruptly ended just five dates in when the pandemic effectively put a stop to live music activities in the States for the rest of 2020.
As the world struggled to adjust to life after Covid, VOID VATOR went to the studio to record guitars, bass, and vocals with Michael Spreitzer of Devildriver at Audio Vault Studio in Torrance, CA. Louder and faster than their previous records, the songs on ‘Great Fear Rising’ pull influence from Power Trip, Turbonegro, The Ramones, Megadeth, Sepultura, Metallica, Van Halen, Thin Lizzy and deals with « getting off your ass and going for what you want, limb the highest mountain, and feel like you’re in control« . The album was mixed and mastered on the East Coast in Milford, CT by Nick Bellmore of Toxic Holocaust/Kingdom of Sorrow at Dexter’s Lab Recording, and will see an April 23rd, 2021 release on Ripple Music.
